Dear Martin,
            I'm afraid I share his view. If not for some interesting quasi-philosophical discussion which manages to sneak in from time to time, I would leave the group as well.

Subject: [FOM] Andrej Bauer complains and leaves FOM

Dr. Bauer had complained about my action, as moderator in ending the thread on psychology and intuitionism. Specifically he complained that by abruptly ending the ongoing interchanges I had left him unable to respond to what Dr. Sambin had said about his views.

I responded by agreeing that he had a point and suggested that he submit a reply to Sambin with a subject line like "Reply to Sambin". He refused saying that he was "done with FOM".

Regarding his assertion that his "posts get regularly rejected by the moderator", a glance at the archives shows that five of his submissions were posted in May and June

Best wishes,
Martin, moderator
